UMaine and UMM Community Health Update (from the UMaine President’s Office)

Per President Joan Ferrini-Mundy’s email sent at 4:20 pm on 3/11/20:

“Dear colleagues, students and community members at the University of Maine and University of Maine at Machias:

“Today, the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus (COVID-19) a pandemic, prompting the University of Maine System to transition to remote instruction for classes on all campuses for the remainder of the semester, effective March 23.

“At the time of this writing, there are no known cases of coronavirus in Maine. Our goal is to do all that we can to ensure the safety and well-being of our community.”

SBE students: your instructors are in the process of transitioning all possible classes to an online format. They will be communicating to you their instructions on how your classes will be formatted and continue after spring break.

Thank you,
Farahad Dastoor,
Director of the School of Biology and Ecology
